Very nice restaurant

Very good place to eat Japanese food. Nice Japanese ambiance. A lot of Japanese people eat there, which probably shows that this place is well worth a try if you are looking for real Japanese food.

There is a plethora of Sushi places in Mexico City, but not enough of the tradicional Japanese. Murakami is without a doubt that. Not just sushi but real Japanese food. And you can tell when you walk in and see that a good part of the staff and eaters are either Japanese or expats.

With so many Japanese restaurants in Mexico being "Mexicanized" with thing like Tampico Sauce or "chiles toreados", it is nice to have something nice and authentic in this area of Polanco filled with so many fast food places.

Generic japanese restaurant. It is located in a cool street in Polanco area full of successful restaurants. It was tasty, it had good vibe, the sushi chef was japanese, he wasn't in the best mood, but it was Saturday at 1 pm, very early. I sat at the sushi bar, it is cool they have one. The music was japan... More

My husband is Japanese and sometimes we want some good Japanese food here in Mexico. If we don't feel like driving we tend to come to Murakami. It is probably the 2nd best Japanese restaurant in Polanco, but the Japanese place in the Hyatt is more expensive so that is why we come here. The food is authentic, and while... More

I've been to Murakami perhaps 60 times or more since 2006. It's become a favourite. I used to go when I lived in Mexico City and now I try to go at least once every time I'm back. It's hard to find a restaurant that meets the three "B's. Murakami does so consistently. It is as they say in Spanish:... More

Simply authentic Japanese food, all customers besides me, Japanese people. Best relationship price/quality in Mexico City. Umami at Polanco's heart at affordable prices!

We loved the food but the atmosphere is to snobish plus you need to take several wallets to pay for the tasting menu (defenitly worth it). But makes it a place to go once in a blue moon. I prices dropped 30% I would be going once a month probablly as the quailty of the food is excelent.

This is the kind of restaurants that are pretentiousness, clean and with an authentic cuisine, it called to my attention so many Japanese people attending and for a good reason, food is great! Service is rather slow, they have a great home-Sake and Japanese beer (I loved it!), price/performance is sky-high!
